The surf's always up in Western Australia.
Famous for its quality and variety, Western Australia's 12,000 kilometres of coastline makes it the perfect frontier for surfing holidays.
Reefs, points and beach-breaks take your pick.
For the city's gnarliest waves head to Trigg
, where shifting sand banks over rocky ledges creates powerful surf.
16 kilometres off the coast, Rottnest Island
offers extraordinary reef breaks - the most famous is Strickland Bay.
Australia's South West
But the undisputed surf capital of Western Australia is Margaret River
home to a huge crop of challenging and powerful waves over 40 scenic kilometres of coastline.
With consistently spectacular surf, it's no surprise the area is a firm favourite with the world's elite.
Surfer's Point, which hosts the Drug Aware Pro Margaret River, offers powerful ground swells and first-class waves.
Even more challenging waves can be found at The Box, North Point, Smiths and Three Bears.
Further down the coast, Yallingup Reef
is renowned for powerhouse 10-foot waves.
At North Point in Gracetown, the surf is world-class and not for the faint-hearted. Two barrels on the same wave is a common treat at this local surf spot.

is one of the world's best-kept surfing secrets. Here, the ocean is filled with hundreds of islands and reefs breaking on the horizon.

Up north, between Perth
and the World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef
